[Melb] GC SSF4AE Ranking Tournament #3 - 7.00PM Thur 17/3/11
« on: March 14, 2011, 01:22:18 PM »
Hey Guys,

Sorry for the lack of posts and updates, just a quick announcement for this week's Ranking Tournament. We'll be using the same entry fee and prize structure as our previous tournament, so no changes there. We do have a couple of new ideas that we're looking over at the moment, so I'll let you guys know once we've ironed out the details on those.

Please keep supporting these events, if we want to show the CEO's that Street Fighter is something worth investing in we need to let them that we're serious about our game.  :p:
The highest number of entrants we've gotten so far was 32 in our first one, the last one we got 28, while not necessarily bad numbers I know we can do much better than that so lets try for a GC Ranking Tournament entrant record and go for 32+.

Thanks guys, hope to see you all there.  :)

GC| Chris Ho.


Melbourne Galactic Circus Ranking Tournament #3

Venue: Galactic Circus, Crown Entertainment Complex.

Date and Time: 7.00PM, Thursday 17th of March 2011

Sign-ups will start from 6.00PM. If you think you might run late, let me know either here or on facebook and I'll pass you my number so you can contact me. Alternatively, you can have some one else notify me and thats cool as well.

Free Parking on Clarke St/Haig St.
Here is the Google Maps link: http://tiny.cc/r5uxy

Format and Rules:
- 1 Match (5 rounds)
- Double Elimination
- Double Jeopardy will be allowed provided it is convenient to do so.
- Top 8 will be seeded, random seeding thereafter.

Entry Fee and Prizes:
Entry Fee: $5 Per Player, every entrant will receive a 30-min Time Card.

Cash Prize Distribution: Cash prizes will awarded to the Top 2 players with an approximate distribution of 45/15 of the the total entry fees.

This is an example of the cash prize distribution for a tournament with 32-entrants.

1st Place - $72 Cash + 30-min Time Card
2nd Place - $24 Cash + 30-min Time Card

All other entrants will still receive a 30-min Time Card as part of entering the tournament.


Galactic Circus Time Cards
At GC, we have special Time Cards which, as their name implies runs off time. With the Time Cards you are allowed to play unlimited Arcade games for the duration of the card, those are games that don't give out prizes (i.e claw games) and games that don't give out tickets. Also newly released games are usually aren't available for time play until a few months after they have been in the venue.

So games like Bishi Bashi, Time Crisis, Battle Gear and DDR are all considered as Arcade games and can be played an unlimited amount for the duration of the Time Card. Unfortunately Street Fighter 4 isn't available for Time Play at the moment since it is still considered a new release. However, you guys can rest assured that we're working on an arrangement that will allow us to achieve our original goal of rewarding players for entering our tournaments with something they can use to level up their game with.

Barring some trouble with work, I should be able to make this.

The parking on Clarke St, when does it become free to park there? I finish at about 5, so I assume after that should be cool?

Here is a tip for you guys driving... I will post it at Sloo and TEC as well.
Basically you can park in the carpark near GC which is like $6 an hour, but if you go upstairs to the bar, and buy something you get a free parking pass.

When you go to drive out, you put in the ticket you get when you first get in, then you put in the ticket the bar gives you. Free Parking! (Sort of). :P

@Kyle - I believe the parking on Clarke St/Haig St becomes free at 6PM, so hopefully that should be ok. Alternatively you could always go with Ali's method, I'm not entirely sure how it works myself but I'll definitely look into it and let you guys know.

@Jpage - No worries man, I've PM'd you my number =D

Thanks a lot guys, see you all tonight.  :p:
